Term 4

Our key line of enquiry this term is 'What if our lunch ran away?'

The Gingerbread Man

The children were shocked to come into the classroom to find part of it cordoned off and mess everywhere. After following the clues they realised the Gingerbread Man was the culprit!

World Book Day

This week we have been celebrating World Book Day. We have had lots of fun listening to different stories, playing in the jungle and creating our own books. We also had a visit from the Fire Brigade and even got to explore inside the fire engine!

Oliver's Vegetables

This week, we have been looking at the story Oliver's Vegetables. We went on a vegetable hunt in the outdoor area, recording down how many of each vegetable we found. We also tried some of the vegetables from Oliver's Garden and made vegetable pizzas.

Term 3

Our key line of enquiry this term is 'What if we had lunch with a witch?'

Number Day

To help raise funds for the NSPCC, we had a day filled with number fun!

Little Red Riding Hood

This week, we have learned the story of Little Red Riding Hood. The children created their own Little Riding Hood by using a pipette and dropping coloured paint to see what new colour they could create. They also had fun in their own fruit and veg shop, making maps and adding teeth to the Big Bad Wolf's gums.

Chinese New Year

The children learned about Chinese New Year, looked at some beautiful clothes, tried writing Mandarin numerals and ate some Chinese food. We even had a go at using chopsticks. Some of us were brilliant at it!

Hansel and Gretel

the children have been intrigued by this story and have thought about whether the children should have really gone into the old lady's house.
In our 'Learning Through Play' time, we have enjoyed making our own tasty gingerbread houses, made maps to help the children find their way out of the forest and created our own play-dough sweet shop.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

The children had a shock when they discovered the classroom had been ransacked and set to work discovering what had happened. After collecting evidence, we realised it was Goldilocks looking for more porridge!


The children have been getting into the festive spirit and learning all about Christmas.


It was Lucy's 5th birthday! The children have enjoyed celebrating with her.


The children have had fun learning all about Diwali.


The children have been learning abour Remembrance and saying Thank You to all of the soldiers that gave their lives for our future. They also learnt about being in the army in modern times.

Autumn and Bonfire Night

The children have been looking for signs of autumn and learning about Bonfore Night.

We're Going On a Villain Hunt!

With all the recent hullabaloo happening in Hedgehogs Class we decided to take the matter into our own hands and had our very own villain hunt

Evil Pea!

There has been more shenanigans in Hedgehogs Class as Mrs Jordan's dinner was kidnapped and held hostage. We concluded that Evil Pea was to blame. We have enjoyed lots of Evil Pea activities in our provision.

Where is Lucy?

This week our beloved Lucy was kidnapped! After following clues around our school we realised Mr Freeze had taken her. We had lots of fun in our learning time, with lots of ice related activities.

Settling in

What an amazing start to our learning journey during the first 2 weeks of school.
